Home > Community Program > Cumberland Food Share

The Village of Cumberland’s Food Bank.

The Food Share includes a Food Shed and bi-weekly deliveries of Healthy Food Boxes to Cumberland residents experiencing food insecurity. Established in April 2020, the goal is to ensure that all residents have access to healthy food right here in our Village. Weird Church built and maintains the Food Shed, while CCSS coordinates and fundraises for the delivery of Healthy Food Boxes. Weird Church provides in kind use of facilities to operate the program.

If you need help:
